- Zhua literally translates to claw. And this weapon represents that entirely. It is an iron claw attached to a 6 ft. pole. Sometimes it bears a weight at the bottom to be used as a bludgeon.
- Some of the better reasons to use a zhua in battle is to disarm someone of their shield or grabbing riders off their horses.
- This is an ancient Chinese weapon and was a known weapon of Sun Tzu, a warrior and general.
